Beaded Jingle Bell Necklace Craft Kit
Fun craft for kids
I bought these for some holiday activities and the kids love them. They are fairly easy to put together and are really cute (and jingly) when done. The one disappointment is that some of the bells were defective. They send extra beads, but extra bells would be so helpful!

Loved them, perfect for the holiday class party
Bought these for first graders and they were perfect. Had no problems with making them and all bells looked great, until my 2 year old grabbed one off my son and ripped the bell off but we were able to fix it. Very easy project.

Great craft for kids
These were one of the crafts for the holiday bazaar at my son's school, and they were great. The kids had no trouble putting them together on their own.
Previous reviews mention difficulty with the bells. This has been addressed by adding a jump ring to each bell, which easily slides onto the cord. The kids loved the finished product, too. Super jingly!
The only downside I saw was that a few of the bells had some tarnish. But that was out of more than a hundred kits, so I'd say the damaged bells were rare.

Something I would wear...
I agree with the other reviews the finished product is great, but the large bell needs some work, too hard to get the cord through.

Great holiday craft
I bought this craft to entertain kids at a party. It was a hit except the large jingle bell would not slide onto the string. We had to make the holes at the top bigger.

Hard for Little Ones
The large bells were very hard to get on the string. We had to use a tool to bend each bell to get the string through. This was a pain since we had 75 bells to bend. Overall the kids loved making their necklaces and they were really cute.

Cute with problems
These necklaces are attractive but they have severe problems. The large bell opening is not big enough to lace the rope through. I used a large metal turkey screwer to enlarge the opening on each set. The small bells have a small ring making putting them on much easier; however, the rings came apart easily and I ended up throwing away the rings and simply using the screwer on all the bells to enlarge the opening. We made them for a holiday party for the grandchildren and they loved them.

I ordered 3 sets of these. Not one bell/cord fit. I spent 3 hours stretching out the loops with an awl so the cords could be threaded through. Additionally, all the individual packages were not filled properly. Out of 36 packages only 3-4 had the proper number of each colored bead in it. This project/craft would have been a complete disaster for my 2nd grade class had I not quality checked it the day before!

wrong sized bell
This product was a very fun project for our class. There was a huge problem, though, the large bell did not have a large enough opening for the cord. I had to run out and get new bells to complete the project.

The large bell did not have a large enough opening to thread the string. I notified OT and hopefully this will be resolved. Cute product and the kids enjoyed making their necklaces despite not being able to use the large jingle bell.
